From the time Ben Landel was a toddler, there was a tenacity about him which has proven successful in the classroom, on the lacrosse and soccer field and on a track. Coupled with this determination is probably the kindest, most loyal, funny and unassuming 17-year-old you’ll ever come across.
So when Ben was having respiratory issues in early Spring, it was surprising to see him slow down, even just a little. Ben was initially diagnosed with pneumonia. After 2 weeks, Ben was still not responding to the antibiotics. An x-ray led to a CT scan, showing 3 tumors in Ben’s chest… Ben has cancer. Over a week later, it was confirmed that Ben has a carcinoma that is rare, powerful and aggressive.
Intensive chemotherapy has begun and endless tests have been performed. A surgery was performed in late August with more therapies and testing to follow. The road ahead is not a straight one, but if anyone can navigate the bumps and swerves, it’s Ben.

100% of the proceeds towards the support of Ben Landel and
the Fight Against Cancer.
